Petite Potence wall lamp, Prouvé Blanc Colombe
Vitra’s Petite Potence wall lamp was designed by Jean Prouvé in 1947. Prouvé designed the first Potence lamp for his own home in Nancy, France, and its refined functionalism has since found its place in various uses in homes and public environments.
Potence is regarded as one of the most puristic works by Prouvé: it consists of a light bulb and a pivoting steel bar held by a steel wire. The steel bar has a length of over one metre, and the included LED bulb is dimmable. Petite Potence catches the eye with its timeless, minimalist appearance, and also makes a great alternative to hanging pendant lights.
The lamp’s subtle hue is part of Jean Prouvé’s original colour palette. The colour used to be called “ecru” in Vitra’s furniture, but in 2022, the name was changed to Blanc Colombe, Prouvé’s original name for the hue. The poetic name is French, and its direct translation would be “dove white”.
